Flood protection certificates for buildings
Specialized flood risk building consultants (engineer or architect) bring in their technical knowledge and experience. They assess the physical flood vulnerability and determine the effects of implemented flood risk mitigation measures. In some countries standardised procedures might be available according to which the experts proceed and issue flood certificates stating risk status advice for additional protective measures to house owners. The certificate might be required for insurance rating purposes.
